Carmichael, Al
Slight scratch on front board otherwise New. Friends and fans have repeatedly asked Al 'Hoagy' Carmichael to put his life and experiences in professional football, Hollywood, and the Marines in writing. Like a lot of people during the 1930s his family struggled. That struggle only became greater when his father, the main breadwinner of the family, died when Carmichael was a teenager. From those humble beginnings, Carmichael went on to attend a prestigious private university, build successful careers in professional football and motion pictures, and provide for his family in a way his parents couldn't have dreamed. This autobiography is a nostalgic and humorous journey through Carmichael's life and two careers. This story will take readers behind the scenes during the glory years of professional football and the movie and television industry. 399pp.

Lou, Jianbo
The purpose of this book is to examine the significant and increasing problem of state bank non-performing loans (NPLs) in China, which have undermined the stability of the banking system and the efficient operation of markets. The accumulation of NPLs in China has been caused by the dominant role of State banks in China's financial markets, weak internal controls within State banks, policy loans to state owned enterprises, unnecessary administrative controls on banks' lending activities, and inappropriate banking regulation and supervision. The author draws on experiences at national, regional and international level to make recommendations for the development of better workout procedures for existing NPLs. He also examines the role of banking regulation and supervision in preventing accumulation of NPLs and in avoiding the impact of NPLs on the stability of the banking system and the conditions of market discipline. 427pp.

Twyman, Michael
In the last few decades lithography has become the major book production process, but its versatility and potential for short-run, "do it yourself" publishing were first exploited early in the 19th century. The arrival of desk top publishing has stimulated an interest in this once neglected, but now very relevant, area of printing history, and Twyman's meticulous research presents the reader with a minute account of the subject. He describes the design and production of a wide range of publications, from a broad variety of sources, for whom lithography promised a flexibility unobtainable from letterpress. However, some of his most interesting accounts and demonstrations are of hopes disappointed and a return to letterpress. This text is a study of the potential of lithography for "do it yourself" publication in the 19th century by the military (manuals), antiquarians (catalogues), by those needing special types (Champollion on hieroglyphs, Pitman on shorthand) and by publishers mixing text with illustration and tables. There were a great variety of users whose output is later mirrored in the "camera ready" books of the 1960s and 1970s. 374pp. N.B. Very very slight fading to top edge of boards and spine.
